Finally, Gaerea, who released a new music video for “Urge”. That track is taken from Limbo, which dropped earlier this year through Season of Mist. And if you haven’t checked it out in full yet, you’re missing out.
Grindcore isn’t really a genre where bands are known for taking risks and pushing the envelope, but Pig Destroyer have always been the exception to that generalization. Mixing whiplash grindcore with thrash riffs, doom atmosphere, harsh noise, thoughtful lyrics and smart songwriting, all while staying true to grind’s fast and furious structure might seem like a challenge but they’ve always made it seem like second nature. This is no less true on the band’s upcoming EP The Octagonal Stairway, which sees them take their newly (relatively) expanded lineup and hone the edges into a razor sharp focus.
Catch that Enslaved Below the Lights stream last week? Maybe it’s still up but if not, and you missed it, shame on you is all I can say. Anyway, another new week and another massive pile of bloody metal to sink your teeth into. Shall we? Rhetorical, of course. The Bay Area’s death metal behemoths Necrot are back with a vicious slab of old school infused death that’ll set your head on fire and make your ears bleed, everyone’s favorite grind masters Pig Destroyer have an EP that is at once familiar but boundary pushing on the backside, Exist chair an all star class on how progressive metal should be done, and Panzerfaust hit us right in the raw yet hypnotic black metal feels and those are good feels, to be sure. See? I told you this week would be massive, and there’s still a ton more below. Enjoy.
Hey all. It’s Jon, freshly cast out from the land of the employed, and finally ready to stare into the doom that awaits us. Drink from the cup of heresy. This week’s offering: Immersion, the latest from Primitive Man and my first attempt using the Brewer’s Best Scottish Ale Homebrew Recipe Kit.
